[LINK] Everybody wants to rule the Web

Agreed that this is an article worth reading! I had a look at it and it
couches some of the concerns about jurisdiction in a summary sort of way,
but more extensive than just 'you can't tell me what to do here'
language. It also points out the business concerns that companies like
Yahoo and others that are in multiple countries now physically need to
consider. If anyone has studied International Business [what it was called
before 'global'], they will click with what this article is saying about
jurisdictional compliance. That's one of the reasons that int'l business
has been seen as risky from the US perspective: the differences in legal
environments were often difficult to manage for - stability and the term
'certainty' are critical for int'l investment. And that's why laws such as
the BSA here can be such a worry for int'l investment. It's not good to be
the 'joke of the internet'.
